The Snake River has carved a canyon through the Snake River Plain up to 500 feet deep and a quarter mile wide in the area surrounding Twin Falls, Idaho. In this week's episode of Grand Adventure, while RV camping for cheap at the Twin Falls County Fairgrounds RV Park we'll watch BASE jumpers leap from the Perrine Bridge, visit the site where Evel Knievel attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in 1974, explore a WWII Japanese internment camp at Minidoka National Historic Site, and of course visit the area's marquee attraction Shoshone Falls before we hatch a plan to see the falls from a very unique angle.
Filmed: July 25-August 1, 2021
Do you need a better way to find perfect campsites? Tired of guessing only to be disappointed? To solve these issues, our video sponsor Campground Views has built some amazing technology by campers, for campers. They already have available complete virtual tours of 200 campgrounds site by site, and their goal is to make virtual tours of every campground available. Video teams have been dispatched across the country, and new campgrounds are constantly being uploaded to their system. As more campgrounds are coming online, membership prices at Campground Views are set to soon go up, but our Grand Adventurers earn a 5% discount off today's already reduced rates for membership terms ranging from 1 month to a lifetime.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
